Definitely recommended.

This is one of those films that feels like watching a live-action sci-fi anime from the late 80s/early 90s. Everything from the costumes, storyline, bizarre characters (mostly named after guitar brands), and even the score, throws off a heavy anime-inspired vibe. Van Damme…
